well i finally got itm in a brm freeroll om stars after about 20 attempts Smile
usually in one of these i'll get a decent stack of 8-10,000 and then i'll just throw them away because the table is so slow or it's all in every hand and i end up just calling everything untill my chips are gone.
after reading Bullettooth's exploits i thought i would try and get itm just for once,well this time i did it and i nearly made the final table Shock
i was 10th out of 14 left, on the button with 44 and it gets folded round to me i've got 240,000 in chips blinds are 30/60,000 so all-in it is if i double up i'm in 6th even if i just take the blinds i'm up to 9th.
sb folds but the bb calls i show my 44 and he shows his 55 Sad a 5 on the flop and it's bye bye me.
oh well at least i got my 1st ever cash in a brm freeroll the princely sum of 21c Big Smile
oh and there was 5,583 entrants so 14th was not a bad finish at all.
gl to all on the felts.

You got unlucky there. But with so many entrants you position is a very good one.
Cant say the same about the money you won too Smile but every little helps

my biggest finish in a massively freeroll was on fulltilt , classic 150$ omaha 7500 entrants for 2nd place and it took 6.5 hours to get 8-9 dollars Big Smile

if you hit some nice hands at the beginning and eleminate the blind allin maniacs for 30-45minutes freerolls become very interesting and i saw that you made it very well Big Smile

congratz again keep it goin' Thumbs Up

These freerolls are really hard going and require ultra concentration and patience with only a small payout but big hopes if you can climb the leader board. All respect to anyone who hits the money..... Even the 5c prize!!!!!

dunno if it's only me, but i find it ultra hard to play any decent game when i face the prospect of ending up with a "huge" payday of $0.04 or similar...haven't played brm freerolls in a while, but when i was actually playing them- i was basically going all in with any cards i had on the 1st hand, if i doubled/tripled then i continued playing, if not just wait for the next freeroll & do the same

i can't speak for anyone else but for me i don't see the brm freerolls prize pool as actual dollars. i just see them as points for climbing up the leader board.
if you look at it like, "I'm playing this donkfest for a couple of hours to win $4.85" then its not really worth the effort or stress. but if you think "I'm playing these to win $175 and entry into a $1500 freeroll AND some bragging rights in the forum" Big Smile THEN its a bit more worth it Big Smile Thumbs Up

good luck all Thumbs Up

well if you put it this way, then yeah it does sound more appealing. don't get me wrong, i'm not saying those freerolls aren't worth of playing or anything similar, i just say that i can't find enough motivation to have a crack at them- this is just a personal opinion.
btw i'm really happy to see you're doing so well in these- gl in the future too Thumbs Up

i know you didn't mean anything by it bud Thumbs Up you definitely need to have the right mindset to have a good crack at these and to put up with all the crap people show up with. that's why i think of it as a challenge to make it up the leaderboard and not a way to start a bankroll.

sorry for taking over your thread teddybears Shock Smile

good luck if your playing today Thumbs Up

G'day mate

Well that is an interesting way to approach it. perhaps if I can wrap my head around that idea i can give the annoying freeroll idiot fest another go.

Be cool and good luck to you.

Congratulations to you on making it to the 14 th place in a field 5583 is a nice run Smile
Well i feel you got unlucky if you had more chips means you could have waited a little bit for some good cards for the shove but you had only 4 bb so you made the right call , but luck wasn't on your side !!! whatever well played ... i dislike freerolls a because for a mere amount of money a lot of time is invested ... good day everyone Smile

Good luck at the tables Agree Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

I've gotten itm a few times but never past the $0.05 mark and unfortunately too far apart to make it to the leaderboard.
I find them fun thou, since i stopped taking them seriously that is. My approach is "fight the fire with fire" in the beginning but still avoiding doing it with cards lower then nines or whatever pocket pairs. If i build up a decent stack that puts me lets say in the first 10% then i tend to slow down.. maybe that's what i'm doing wrong. Reahing a final table there it's not the greatest reward ( for a tourney with 3k runners sometimes) but reaching a top place in the leaderboard is a totally different matter. Hopefully ull manage to do it mate... the most important thing is to gather as much points as u can before the end of the month... wish you the best of luck with that Thumbs Up

G'day mate

Congratulation to you on a very nice finish. I personally would not have shove with them 4's but i understand about the idea of stealing blinds. which is way the big blind called you.
He figured you was just trying to make a stealing move and you very well might have nothing but air. he had a pair so was going into the hand ahead. He figure hey I could double up and if not oh well it is still a cash in a freeroll what the heck.
He call and to his delight had you dominated and then he won the race. He felt like a gebius and a hero all at once.

Be cool mate you will get em next time.
Good luck at the tables.

hello, nice result. yes itțs hard to get on that place on ps brm freeroll , there are too many joker players. And yes , you if you want to some money , not from PS brm freeroll, you need to chase for the leaderboard , but it rly need some time and to be very patient.

GL.

I miss so much unnibet bankrollmob leaderboard Big Smile Just 3 tournaments in day, 300-400 field of players, and 10% payout structure Heart Big Smile made around 40 euros in 2 months (with leaderboard prize) good for build bankroll for beginners Smile I hope they will be here soon again.
